Summary: Lily and Hugo will be spending a month together while Uncle Ron and Aunt Hermione are on holiday in France. But in a small town with all the older Potters away at Hogwarts, there is surprisingly little to do.
At least until they stumble upon an old book in the attic entitled Lily's Laws for Living; a book that seems to have been written especially for the two of them. And so, the two cousins spend there month of holiday, and the years afterward living the lives according to the laws set forth by Lily Marie Evans.
I love the story so far, it has made me laugh several times =) and I applaude the Year 1 reference in the last paragraph =P The only thing I wasn't too sure about was the fact that Harry gave up the Muggle part of his life completely, it doesn't seem right to me for some reason. Besides the fact that most grown men don't know a whole lot about cars anyway. Unless they're professionals or grew up around someone who was a mechanic, whether professionally or for leisure. Please update soon =) (and if you're suffering from writer's block, hope you get over it soon. they can be such pain in the necks)

Author's Response: Well, as far as Harry giving up his Muggle way of life, my thinking was always that Harry would associate being a Muggle with being unwanted and abused, where as in the wizarding world, he is beloved by many people and thought of as a hero. Not to mention he wasn't very old when he learned he was a wizard, so is exposure to Muggle culture and his previous attitudes towards Muggles would leave much less of an impression than Muggle-born children who came from loving homes. But that's just the way I saw it. It's open to interpretation.
Summary: “…and all the men and women merely players”
--William Shakespeare, As You Like It, 1600
When Professor Viola Cassio arrives at Hogwarts, she is dismayed by the lack of Muggle culture her students exhibit. She intends to make some changes - starting with the introduction of Shakespeare to her students. And organising a Drama Club seems like the perfect way to begin.
Compelled into joining by her friends, bookish Rose Weasley finds herself unwittingly sucked into Professor Cassio’s reproduction of Romeo and Juliet… as the leading lady. Unfortunately, it seems that none other than Scorpius Malfoy has been assigned the role of Romeo. But as personalities clash and sparks fly, Rose finds it increasingly difficult to distinguish where rehearsal ends and real life begins.
To top off the whole fiasco, someone is after the Drama Club’s closure, and will seemingly stop at nothing to get it…
I like Scorpius, he's quirky in a good way. Why is he so interested in Rose going to drama club? Honestly if I were Rose, at Scorpius's last comment, he've been slapped upside the head XD Please update soon =)

Summary: Clariss Flint has always thought herself a normal teenage girl who attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, during her sixth year at Hogwarts she begins to experience flashbacks to the past, where she experiances the life of Miss Ara Grey, a girl who attended Hogwarts in the seventeenth century. Clariss uncovers Ara's dangerous affair with the handsome Potions Master of the time, and as she becomes more and more involved with discovering what happened to the lovers, she notices that their lives are incredibly similar. Clariss begins to find love of her own at Hogwarts, and an ultimatum leads her to discover just how much the dead can influence the living.
Amazing story. I can't say which parts I like the most because they're all good. Please update soon =)

Author's Response: Thank you very much for reading this and for the review!
I didn't mean for this to happen. Really. My plan was to get through sixth-year without doing any more damage to myself. I've already wrecked so many good things in my life. I thought I was done with my self-destruction.
Apparently, I'm not. Because falling in love with Albus was not part of my plan.
Poor Maddy!!! I had tears in my eyes as I read that. I really hope Charlotte screws up and Maddy and Al can be together.
Author's Response: Well, you'll have to keep reading to see what happens next, but a little hint - a lot of screwed up things happen in the next few chapters :) Thanks for reviewing!
Poor Maddy =( The story is really good so far. I'm wondering what exactly happened between Maddy and Charlotte but I'm sure it will be highlighted in a later chapter? Please update soon =)

Author's Response: Yep, some of it's been foreshadowed already, but the big bit's coming up a chapter or two's time. Thanks for your review!
We are all influenced by the actions or inactions of our parents. The same is true of Scorpius Malfoy; he has been raised by an overly protective mother and a father who is still coming to grips with the mess that his own father made of his life. Scorpius knows that he will be judged at Hogwarts by what others know or think they know about his father and grandfather.
At Hogwarts Scorpius will meet:
Albus Potter the middle child of ‘The Great Harry Potter’ and Quidditch star Ginny Weasley Potter. A boy who not only has things to live up to but an older brother ready to remind him of who’s boss.
Rose Weasley, Albus’ surrogate sister/first cousin, struggling in her own way, not her mother’s way, to succeed.
Kaitlin Jones, daughter of Tornados player Owain Jones and favorite niece of Gwenog Jones, who is at home on a broom and lost almost everywhere else.
Jimber Dokes recent immigrant from the West Indies trying to fit his own magical heritage Vardoo with the Western style of magic taught at the school
Thad Vance, the Gryffindor Quidditch captain, his grandfather and all of his uncles and aunts were killed by Death Eaters, maybe Lucius Malfoy
Meanwhile in London, Draco and Astoria Malfoy try to build a new life and legacy by betting all they own on a Potions Shop in Diagon Alley.
